When Fat Charlie’s dad named something, it stuck. Even now, twenty years later, Charlie Nancy can’t shake that name, one of the many embarrassing “gifts” his father bestowed – before he dropped dead on a karaoke stage and ruined Fat Charlie’s life. But, Mr. Nancy left Fat Charlie things—like the tall good-looking stranger who appears to be the brother he never knew. Suddenly, life starts getting very interesting for Fat Charlie, because Charlie’s dad wasn’t just any dad. He was Anansi, a trickster god, the spider-god! Exciting, scary, and deeply funny,
Anansi Boys is a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth, a wild adventure, and a fierce and unstoppable farce, as Neil Gaiman returns to the territory of his masterpiece, American Gods, to probe the dark recesses of the soul!
